    My Sunday benching started out slow and I thought I would only get a couple of good shots but, on the spur of the moment I decided to check a bench that I don't shoot often. A train stopped there giving me a great chance to shoot some flicks with the graffiti and the fall foliage of Utah. I'll be posting these as the week goes on but first I'll post the few that I got at my main bench. I have a couple of flicks that are unique (IMHO) that I'm sure that you guys can add more info on and educate me a little more on the art of train graffiti. The one I believe you can educate me on is the first couple that shows something new to me. This is what I believe to be graffiti on the inside of a car? This to me goes against what graffiti is all about which is to put art and your tags out for everyone can see? What purpose does this art serve? Please educate me on this one. The last couple of flicks are a little Halloween candy, I added one of the 12oz Prophet's stickers to my Halloween display.

    Like that you put effort into your Halloween decorations!

    Graf inside the car is not common but I've seen it done more than a few times. Typically what you find in the cars is markings by hobos and other riders who rode those cars places and were leaving their mark and/or were bored. Sometimes you find writing left by RR or related workers. I imagine hobos wrote inside the cars as long as they've been riding them but as it relates to graf, graf started on subway cars where colorful pieces were done on the outside but the insides of the subway cars were destroyed with tags. Writing inside a freight is kind of a novelty thing to do... low chances of being seen, pretty certain there are RR regulations in place such that cars are not supposed to travel with open doors.

    Halloween is a favorite holiday so I do decorate quite a bit. As always thanks for the info One Man Banned this is the first one I seen on the inside and the car was parked with the door open and not hooked to a train.

    Here's the last of the fall foliage flicks I took, the last one I saw as I was leaving and only got a flick from far away and not a very good one at that.
